Cannot thank you enough for that. And so timely. Was assessing my game plan thinking I need to do better this time around. Here's the hard part ... because I used plumbing flux knowing full well it was a bad idea. Twas all I had. Still no excuse.Ok, cool, so you know what you're getting into then. If you havn't heard of or seen it yet, I highly recommend no clean flux;
The stuff is a joy to work with and has no ill effects on working surfaces.
You'll need dispenser bottles too;

One saving grace is I had good sense to stop short before doing the Soltek SL-75DRV4 too. Had everything lined up on the bench ready to go. Got that board for $12 new in a NewEgg clearance sale and never used it. Caps went bad sitting in the box. Pulled aforementioned Abit KR7A out of mothballs and can see a questionable solder joint on one of the caps I put in. Going to completely re do it. With proper flux, thanks to you.
